       cryptsetup-tcryptDump - dump the header information of a TCRYPT (TrueCrypt or VeraCrypt
       compatible) device


       cryptsetup tcryptDump [<options>] <device>


       Dump the header information of a TCRYPT (TrueCrypt or VeraCrypt compatible) device.

       If the --dump-volume-key option is used, the TCRYPT device volume key is dumped instead of
       TCRYPT header info. Beware that the volume key (or concatenated volume keys if cipher
       chain is used) can be used to decrypt the data stored in the TCRYPT container without a
       passphrase. This means that if the volume key is compromised, the whole device has to be
       erased to prevent further access. Use this option carefully.

       <options> can be [--dump-volume-key, --key-file, --tcrypt-hidden, --tcrypt-system,
       --tcrypt-backup, --veracrypt (ignored), --disable-veracrypt, --veracrypt-pim,
       --veracrypt-query-pim, --cipher, --hash, --header, --verify-passphrase, --timeout].

       The keyfile parameter allows a combination of file content with the passphrase and can be


       --hash, -h <hash-spec>
           Specifies the passphrase hash. Applies to plain and loopaes device types only.

           For tcrypt device type, it restricts checked PBKDF2 variants when looking for header.

       --cipher, -c <cipher-spec>
           Set the cipher specification string for plain device type.

           For tcrypt device type it restricts checked cipher chains when looking for header.

       --verify-passphrase, -y
           When interactively asking for a passphrase, ask for it twice and complain if both
           inputs do not match. Ignored on input from file or stdin.

       --key-file, -d name
           Read the passphrase from file.

           If the name given is "-", then the passphrase will be read from stdin. In this case,
           reading will not stop at newline characters.

           With LUKS, the passphrase supplied via --key-file is always the existing passphrase
           requested by a command, except in the case of luksFormat where --key-file is
           equivalent to the positional key file argument.

           If you want to set a new passphrase via key file, you have to use a positional
           argument to luksAddKey.

           See section NOTES ON PASSPHRASE PROCESSING in cryptsetup(8) for more information.

       --dump-volume-key, --dump-master-key (OBSOLETE alias)
           Print the volume key in the displayed information. Use with care, as the volume key
           can be used to bypass the passphrases, see also option --volume-key-file.

       --timeout, -t <number of seconds>
           The number of seconds to wait before timeout on passphrase input via terminal. It is
           relevant every time a passphrase is asked. It has no effect if used in conjunction
           with --key-file.

           This option is useful when the system should not stall if the user does not input a
           passphrase, e.g. during boot. The default is a value of 0 seconds, which means to wait

       --header <device or file storing the LUKS header>
           Use a detached (separated) metadata device or file where the LUKS header is stored.
           This option allows one to store ciphertext and LUKS header on different devices.

           For commands that change the LUKS header (e.g. luksAddKey), specify the device or file
           with the LUKS header directly as the LUKS device.

       --tcrypt-hidden, --tcrypt-system, --tcrypt-backup
           Specify which TrueCrypt on-disk header will be used to open the device. See TCRYPT
           section in cryptsetup(8) for more info.

           This option is ignored as VeraCrypt compatible mode is supported by default.

           This option can be used to disable VeraCrypt compatible mode (only TrueCrypt devices
           are recognized). Only for TCRYPT extension. See TCRYPT section in cryptsetup(8) for
           more info.

       --veracrypt-pim, --veracrypt-query-pim
           Use a custom Personal Iteration Multiplier (PIM) for VeraCrypt device. See TCRYPT
           section in cryptsetup(8) for more info.

       --batch-mode, -q
           Suppresses all confirmation questions. Use with care!

           If the --verify-passphrase option is not specified, this option also switches off the
           passphrase verification.

       --debug or --debug-json
           Run in debug mode with full diagnostic logs. Debug output lines are always prefixed by

           If --debug-json is used, additional LUKS2 JSON data structures are printed.

       --version, -V
           Show the program version.

           Show short option help.

       --help, -?
           Show help text and default parameters.
